Below you will find many of the interesting
and unique sounds made by wolves. Alone or in a pack,
these amazing animals have a music all their own. They use these
various sounds to communicate among themselves, or as warnings of danger.



  HUMAN HOWL

 

Human Howl

[31K-au]

It is widely known, that if a human howls and there are wolves close by, they usually howl back.

It seems that wolves respond to humans that howl in a high pitch tone.

  LONE WOLF HOWL

Single Howl

[145K-au]

This is the sound of a single wolf. The wolf making this sound weighs 115 lbs and is a reddish black female British Columbian Timberwolf.

A CHORUS OF WOLVES

 Chorus of Wolves

[80K-au]

Wolves love a good howl. Usually one wolf starts and the others jump in with wagging tails and general friendliness. No two wolves will howl on the same note. Beautifully strange, isn't it?

WOLF YIPPINGS

Wolf Yippings

[59K-au]

Wolves will yip. A yip for wolves usually contains short high pitched barks. This seems to serve the function of an alarm.

SOMETHING IS WRONG!

WHIMPERING

Single Wolf Whimper

[82K-au]

Lois Crisler believed this to be a form of "wolf talk". When a wolf makes this unique sound, the wolf appears very emotionally stirred.

Two Wolves Whimpering

[151K-au]

Whimpering is commonly heard from the pups, but it seems the adults do it with each other too. Perhaps these sounds are more on the romantic level...could be.
